Japanese Women Artists, 1600-1900, Recommended Reading

One of my favorite volumes. Many of these women artists are barely represented online, if at all. This book is a treasure

The Printmaker's Daughter: A Novel, Recommended Reading

I don't usually recommend novelizations of artist's lives, but Katherine Govier undertook incredibly deep research into the life of Katsushika Ōi for this novel, making it both insightful and a great read. Just remember that it's part fiction :)
